Carpin on with Specimen Carp Baits

If you picked up an application form from the Specimen Carp Baits stand at the Five Lakes Carp Show please post it off to the membership secretary as he has promised to turn your application around quickly so you can fish the last month of the 2012/13 season for free.

Sea fishing trips

If anyone fancies a sea fishing trip please check out our web page for spaces on forth coming events. We are a small friendly fishing crew that are looking for new members to help fill the boats. For any more information just give me a call, Simon Putnam 07876 503533.

Open Day at Bog Grove on Sun 19th Aug

If you fancy a free days fishing why not come along to our Bog Grove fishery (its much nicer than it sounds) in Great Totham on Sunday 19th August at any time between 8am and 4pm for our open day.  For this one day per year the fishing is completely free and the lake has a good head of carp to mid doubles as well as rudd, tench, crucian, roach, ide, gudgeon and ruffe.  Bailiffs and committee members will be on hand to give you some pointers if required and if the sun is shining (you never know it could appear some day!) the carp will be up on the surface taking floaters.  Anyone who enjoys themselves sufficiently that they decide they want to join Maldon Angling Society to fish Bog Grove again, along with our other 15 stillwaters and 14 miles of river and canal, can take away a special event application form giving them a generous 20% discount on their membership fees.

There will also be an open to all pairs fishing competition.  Why not introduce a friend to fishing and try and catch as much as you can in an hour.  Pairs will share a swim with a rod each. For details and to book your place ring Denise on 07719 633418.  All welcome new, old and current members. 16 and under must be accompanied by an adult.

Floaters often score well at Bog Grove.

Thank you George

Paul Kemp would like to publicly thank George Basham on behalf of the committee for helping out at the Blackwater Country Show in what again turned out to be treacherous weather conditions.  I understand that our gazebo took a hell of a beating from the strong winds!

Specimen Carp Baits to sponsor Howells Carp Match

We are pleased to confirm that Specimen Carp Baits will be sponsoring the 48 hour Alan Hare Carp Cup Match at Howells lake over the Bank Holiday weekend of Sat 25th August to Mon 27th August.  This is a great opportunity for members without a Howells night permit to fish the lake and you now have the added incentive that you might win some bait as well.  For more info and to book your place please contact the match organiser Pete Newell.
